MOORMAN Family History

This distinguished British surname recorded in a wide range of spellings including: More, Mores, Moor, Moores, Moors, Moreman, Morman, Moorman, and in Scotland Muir, has a number of possible origins. The first is a topographical name for someone who lived on a moor or in a fen, both of which were denoted by the Olde English pre 7th Century word "mor", or from one of the various villages so named such as Moore in the county of Cheshire, or More in Shropshire. Secondly it may have been a nickname for someone of dark or swarthy complexion.
